Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.

This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Eye friendly colors when coding for long hours...
A long time ago I was coding all day every day and used a background very similar to yours with font colors (amber, almost salmon?) that provided a good contrast and kept my eyes from getting tired.
The only problem was that when I looked away from the screen and looked across the room everything was in grayscale (no color) for a few seconds. I found it to be an interesting side effect and decided something was wrong so I changed the colors.
@Tracy Tiger : I haven't had any problems like that. It's just that my monitor is bright. Background is "SlateGray", foreground "AntiqueWhite".
@Arcosanti : The background are just rxvt's without titlebars that I've placed in a tiling fashion using a small script.
@rogan: I see. So you are just simulating one of the tiling windows managers then. The most minimalistic I've ever done was just running X Windows with out anything installed. It just comes up with a terminal in the background where you can start up various apps from.
Check out this site fellas you'll go crazy. That's where I got the wallpaper from. Just google 4walled its amazing! You can just click random or search for something in particular. PM me if you want the wallpaper.
